Responding to a Provisional Application under the Divorce Act

You have been served with two forms, which were filed in the Court of Queen's Bench of Alberta. The forms are:

Notice of Confirmation Hearing – This form tells you the court date.
Package of Documents from the other court – This package includes the Provisional Order, the documents filed by the other party, a transcript of the evidence and any other documents that the other court decided were relevant.

Provisional Process

Do not be alarmed by the Provisional Order. This is a suggested order only. It was made by the other court, usually without you knowing about it. You will have your chance now to give your evidence to the Alberta court, and the Alberta court will make the final decision.

Time Limits

You must take the steps listed here before the court date.

We recommend that you talk to a lawyer before taking any steps.
